Special Message from the Pastor
As you may know you have a dispensation from your Sunday obligation to attend mass. So it will not be a sin if you do not attend mass until the danger from COVID-19 passes.
As per Bishop Soto’s direction, we have temporarily suspended public Mass at Our Lady of Grace; however, we are still celebrating Mass daily using technology. Daily Mass is offered via OLG West Sac YouTube Channel, and Sunday Mass is streamed live at 9 a.m. with the live stream available for replay.
I am praying for all of you that you may be protected from this virus. Additionally, I am inviting all of you to join me in prayer especially for all the families of our parish, even as we pray for the whole world. I am inviting all the children especially to pray for your own family and our parish family.
May God protect us and bring us safe through this pandemic.
Always be courageous, trusting in the Lord.
Fr. Mathew Rappu
